if so what are your top three favorite bands?

I'd probably say:
1. Explosions in the Sky
2. This Will Destroy You
3. God Is An Astronaut
1. Godspeed You! Black Emperor
2. Mogwai
2. Explosions in the sky

That was hard 2 pick a top 3...and yep, im a huge fan of post rock!
I like Red Sparowes' one CD "At the Soundless Dawn"... That is really it. Everything else really bores me.. Not like I haven't tried though. I listened to a few GY!BE albums (everyone I know claims they are the end all of post rock), some Silver Mt Zion, and some EITS, but never sat with me well.

Something about Red Sparowes gives almost a storylike feel to it which is why I like them more.
Like-father, like-son rebels bloated on korn, eminems and bizkits. Lord hear our prayer take back your Amy Grant mosh-crews and your fair-weather politics
There's a big thread in the Alt/Indie forum.
"There are millions of people in the world, and none of those people are an extra. They're all leads in their own stories."
